OKPIK Winter Camping Program

Okpik (Uk-pik) is an Eskimo word for snow owl. This unique program was begun in January of 1972. It offered Scouts a way to fully experience winter camping--and, with it activities like skiing, snowshoeing and survival. (The Maine National High Adventure Area also had an Okpik program with its own series of patches.)
